Happy June! I am not where I'd planned to be at this time, but I am still optimistic for the future. I am hopeful. Unbeknown to me, I have been on medication that causes weight gain up to 30 pounds. Since the 5% challenge, I have gained 12.5 pounds. In a month. I am now 150.5, per my last weight in yesterday.
But today is a new day! Now that I know the reason for this seemingly unexplainable weight gain, I CAN better fight it! I am going to exercise more and try and eat healthier. The goal will be to be a little hungry when I go to bed, but not ravenous.
I am looking forward to future success. I feel good. It was raining but I still went out this morning and walked. I am going to go on another one when the rain stops! The goal is for 3 miles today, which I will reach after my next planned walk.
I am also going to start back on the 30 Day Shred. I know exercise is the key for me, since I have never really done it regularly before. I want to be healthier, I want to be more fit, and I want to be comfortable in my own skin. Being this heavy - the heaviest I have been in my entire life - is a shock. Maybe I needed that?
I saw this on a fellow Sparker's blog, and loved the message, so I will share it with you!
